I thought I show you my Lathes one is a DoAll 13x60 and the little red one is Harbor Freight 7x10. The DoAll needs some work but it works find till I can get my second mill and surface grinder going I had to tear them down to haul the grinder and both got wet in the rain while loading them for the move from Buffalo, NY to Jefferson City, TN. Not bad only about 5000# setting on the axles of my trailer the first time I'd had brake dust on the six trips down and back.

Maybe we need a thread on functional machinery from the 1800's. Some of these machines are fascinating in their design and usage.

I put a thread titled (vintage milling machine) i'm unsure of it's real age but it's an early profile miller the operator wound the bed and the spindle traced a sheetmetal pattern bolted to the bed

Hi Folks.

Thought you might like my oldun



Just done this to my Elliott.


I like the lift over top of the mill, I was told about a way to make a nice hoist using a tractor trailer axle. You cut the axle in half leaving the brake unit on, dig a hole about 12" or more depending on the soil and bury the axle to the brake in concrete. Now mount a lift on top of the brake. Plumb air valve to the brake unit so when the air is on it can move when the air is of it's stationary. I'm still trying to find an axle but sounded like a great idea.

Hi Folks, a lot of nice machinery out there. Here's a photo of my first lathe, a Micromark 7X16 with 3" three way and 4" 4 way chucks, QCTP etc. A perfect lathe for my hobby room.

Nice lathe Florian, I have the same model newly acquired.
But alas no change gears, Can you come back to me with module size for gears, or say diameter of the 60 tooth wheel? Dirk [email protected]

Hi folks
my lathe started out life as a Denford Orac, it now boasts an 8 station tool changer, sadly its still not finished due to ill health.

Hi,
Here is my lathe,
haulin 01.jpg
an Haulin made at Charenton near Paris in the 1960-70 years.
I have had a few lathes and milling-machines.
I have a project for a hit & miss engine with aluminium casting.
Before i have to make a very simple engine to learn machining difficulties like crankshaft and others.
My site :

Thanks a lot for all your news.
Best regards,
Alex

This is my Logan 2555VL, 12x24 variable speed. It's a 1961 model (like its owner)

Looked like this when I got it

I spent a summer restoring it, and now it looks like this (and works much better too). Currently sitting on a cart down in the shop waiting for me to get the shop interior finished (we bought a house earlier this year, this photo is in the old garage)

Here is a pic of a little Schaublin I use to make small screws and bushings. The compound is a Gilman and I fabricated the tailstock.

Has any one added oil groves with wickes to a south bend 9"wide body headstock? Thinking about using a burr in a dreamel tool to grind them in and insert wicks in them to hold more lube.
